Barbour Centennial Award (328668)

The Barbour Scholarship program was originally endowed by Levi Barbour in 1917 to support female graduate students from Asia and the Middle East. The Barbour Centennial Award honors a century of support, and with your contribution, will help mitigate the financial strain that often comes with graduate student research, including travel, resources, and living expenses.

The Barbour Scholarship is very prestigious, and I heard about it before I came to study at U-M. I’m extremely honored and fortunate to have received the award. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this amazing tradition.
